Secretly In Love

Right now I am lovin’ Wes Anderson. I watched Moonrise Kingdom the other day and it was incredible, it will sit alongside Fantastic Mr Fox in my head and I will laugh with joy whenever I think of them. Seriously check them both out if you haven’t already. (Check this earlier post I wrote about Mr Fox).

So when I found this inspired art of The Royal Tenenbaums I had to share. Hope you like as much as I do! Artwork by Nan Lawson which is also buy-able.



Elephants are not sexy

“What you gonna do with all that junk all that junk inside your trunk?”

Who are we kidding elephants are NOT sexy. That are adorable and have been know to play the flute or paint pretty pictures, but they are not sexy. This was a Valentine’s Day card to the boy, I thought I’d make it this year. It is pretty much ripped off from one of my pinterest find called ‘Thirsty Elephant’  by Terry Fan

p.s. sorry for all the posts today, I am not even that into Valentine’s Day. I just missed blogging.

The Science Museum is real(ly) cool

I found at the Science Museum last year and thought it was super cute, I especially like the (mis)use of brackets.

If you have not been to the Science Museum in a while you should check out the Launchpad, I went again last weekend and it’s incredible. I know it’s really for kids discovering science but every time I go I try out all the experiments as if it was my first time. You can watch ice freeze under a microscope, generate electricity for a hair-dyer by cycling or discover how a hearing aid works by listening to music that only plays in your head. Gee all this talking is making me wanna go again!


Hate Mail

I am lovin’ this post card. Dear Mark, fuck you and fuck your cat. It is a bit harsh, but maybe the cat was a bitch. Have a look at some more, I personally like the ‘YOU WILL NEVER BE AS GOOD AS PETER ANDRE’ one. It is true, we will never be as good as him but he is really good so we mustn’t beat ourselves up about it. There is whole array of these cards by Mr Bingo which can be brought on Amazon. It’s on my birthday wish list, although I have to wait 6 months for it, darn!

Snow Puft

Yesterday I promised if it snowed more I would make an re-enactment of the marshmallow man from Ghostbusters. And as you all know It snowed a fuck ton last night so I had no excuse but to painstakingly make him.

And this is the conscience, meet my little buddy Snow Puft. He is a lot smaller than my inspiration photo but I added miniature cars and real life fire to even the playing field out. Hope you like him!



Happy snow day people! I do love the snow, it makes everything look beautiful. But don’t be fooled it can trick you, my dog Harvey fell into a lake today trying to catch a ball. Silly marshmallow chaser.

I found this picture and thought it was perfect for today, I can’t find the illustrator though. Darn it. If any of you lovely people out there happen to know please do tell.

I am going to go out and enjoy the snow, but a parting word of advice, don’t eat the yellow snow, it’s not Slush Puppy contrary to the believes of five year-olds. I learnt the hard way…


Breaking the Obvious

Today the boy brought me a present. I don’t know what it is but I like it.

This is a card from a site called ohhdeer.com it was made by a man named Mark Callaby. If you would like to see more of these delightful cards click here.

Happy Halloween Peoples

Here is a share of my costume, I’ve worn it since 8am this morning and it’s still not rubbed off. I reckon it will take a few baths before I stop being grey. Anyway I hope you are all getting festive with your faces.
